Top notch!!!

The narration is done really well, and it compliments the story perfectly. Michael Sisa did a damn fine job on the story and I’m looking forward to hear what’s next. Good character progression, and lots of thrills to keep you on edge waiting to see what happens next.

Great Story

Great overall, always wishing the story was longer. Very glad each pack has two books included.

The narrator sometimes makes voices sound similar which can occasionally be confusing, but doesn’t take away from the story.

Like a good slice cheesecake

I have over 400 books in my library and this is my go to series when I tire of looking for a new enjoyable series. I've never looked forward to with so much anticipation of the next installment of any book as I am now with this series. My only worry is that my great expectation will not ruin the books that follow. Obviously everybody has a different taste, but like a good slice of cheesecake, I am baffled how anyone would dislike it.

Enjoyable

I've been listening to this since the first one came out I have over 526 audible titles and I have to say this is at least in the top 10. It's only one major flaw in this book it's that it is too short but that's just me sounding greedy.
But really the only real problem if you don't like overpowered characters you probably won't like this book he has some strife but usually he can Power his way through it.
Spoiler alert
.
.
I'm excited to figure out how after getting that much wealth what he will have to face next I mean he's already found one of the hidden secrets about area there's bound to be more. Also Blackie is going to be a bigger problem than he think a good character but man he's going to murder a lot of people.

***FANTASTIC***

I'm at 120 audiobook and this series is one of my favorite, it has the fun of a good rpg without the annoying leveling up of litrpg ex: then mc drink a glass of water. Mc ability to drink water has leveled by one !

Starting to get repetitive

For the most part, it is just a repetition of the previous books. Lark is perfect ( you know how amazing he is because people keep pointing it out), and doesn’t have any character development, even though he has a chance at a second life it doesn’t feel like it, it just feels like an awkward insertion, most character interactions feel empty with little to no development between characters that really go beyond being told that they care about each other. Lark isn’t a person, he’s a caricature, just a combination of exaggerated perfections to create the “perfect” person. This is mostly just a repeat of the previous books with substituted characters.

Finally!

Love this series and the way the MC uses his brain to solve problems. Blackie is absolutely one of the best characters ever, love him! I do hope his powers grow and he can create an “Endless Empire”! I can’t wait for the next book and absolutely can’t wait for the audiobook publisher pack!

I loved every second of it

Too short! I want more! hahahaha, it's definitely one of the top OPMC stories out there. I love the world building, smart MC, lots of characters, city building, and clever takes on items/herbs/stuff in the world.

cons: too short.

PS: is there a map for this world/continent? I would love to have that to supplement the experience.

Very "Beginning After the End" -like

Only complaints are that it takes to long to get the next audiobook and they are too short...can listen to two books in a single day if you try.

That complaint out of the way...this series is epic. The pure fact that the OPMC isn't an idiot sets this series apart from most of the books in this category.

If you haven't tried these yet it's is a must. Top notch narration with a crazy story

More of the same... fun story poorly written

In no way does the MC grow or change. No hint of a personality or desire. No indication that he has human emotions or thoughts.

The longer the story goes on the more it seems like the MC is somewhere between, willfully ignorant of how his actions and the way he talks to people make him NOT A GOOD PERSON... or a full out sociopath (which not innately a bad thing... just means he has zero capacity to understand others feelings).
Mind you... a story about a morally gray "hero" is very interesting, but we dont get that here. He is posited as the OP MC here to help and save the ppl, but actually acts in a way thats between anti-hero and soon to be heel turned villain.

I feel like this is an effort from the author to wink at the reader to insert some type of comedy by having the main character Lark Marcus under explain or just be creepy about everything as to confuse people he's talking to. However, this is a complete miss (even though it keeps happening) because he will immediately try to clean it up by giving a better explanation.

All other characters just think to themselves how AMAZING the MC is and how jealous they are of how AMAZING he is... - show dont tell

- OR -

All other characters have 90%+ of their dialogue simple disagreeing with anything the main character just said... "IMPOSSIBLE!!" is uttered by every new character we meet, and the majority of those characters only display this as personality. (unless in a couple chapters they fall into the other category)

MC is in business with terrible people (doesnt care)

He spends lives under him like they are nothing (even though the narrator cant tell us enough how much the MC "cares" about his subjects) - show dont tell.

He uses his strength to whatever end he sees fit (which in like 90% of flushed out stories means HES NOT A GOOD GUY)

***light spoiler***
- That business at the end with the elves literally makes him a tyrant taking advantage of an indigenous people with no remorse... and this is our "hero" of the story???

...much like the last two publishers packs (4 books) the author needs more reps
- too many repeated phrases or words
- little to no world building beyond the scene we are in getting us to the next "plot" point
- Show dont tell please... The narration and internal thoughts of side characters constantly assign meaning and intent behind things that the MC doesn't actually do, think, or intend...

... With all that said. If you are like me and would prefer an easy ride of a listen, no real tension or consequences. Nothing complicated or detailed to remember or imagine then I highly recommend "The Wizards Butler" by Nathan Lowell
... ... if you've spent that credit, then id recommend his space ferrying story line starting with "Quarter Share", there are like 5 or 6 of those...

...If after that, you are still looking for some easy listening then this series is good enough!

Or if like me you would rather finish a series (as long as its not bad) than start a new one... do it.

Loved it

Hope they continue the series with more audiobooks, ive listened to over 150 fantasy audiobooks over the past 2 years and this series is one of my favorites. Main character is OP but at the same time has his limitations, cant wait for more!!!
